When you envision your dream home, what images come to mind? Do you see yourself sipping hot chocolate with your beloved in front of a cozy fireplace on a cold winter’s morn? Can you picture yourself curled up in your favorite reading nook – perhaps a spacious bay window – on a sunny Saturday afternoon? Do you dream of entertaining your family and friends in a high tech media room or a kitchen designed with home chefs in mind?
We all have a wish list of amenities we’d like to incorporate into our fantasy homes if money were no object and we were building a custom home from scratch – but for most of us, those wish lists remain pipe dreams.
When I bought my first home, I spent a lot of time and money making essential repairs, but one home improvement that I made – an amenity that brought a smile to my face every single day that I lived in that home – was replacing the non-descript wall-to-wall beige carpeting that the previous owners had purchased with beautiful, durable vinyl plank flooring.
I always dreamed of owning a house with maple wood flooring as I love the natural beauty of wood. As I began to research my options, however, I discovered that vinyl plank flooring offers homeowners all of the beauty of natural wood at a fraction of the cost! You can install vinyl plank flooring in just about every room of your house (including humidity-prone areas such as basements and bathrooms!) as it is durable and resilient. This turned out to be the perfect solution for me!
If you are thinking of beautifying your home with new flooring, GoHaus makes it easy to explore your options from the privacy of your home or office! Everything you need is right at your fingertips. They’ll even send you free samples so you can see what your favorite choices look like in your home!
When we think about the amenities we’d like in our perfect home, flooring isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind – but perhaps it should be, as it impacts the atmosphere and comfort level throughout our entire home!
What type of flooring would you choose for your dream home?

I love our hard wood floors and wish I had them in more rooms.
I SO miss the beautiful flooring from my first house!
Our current home is covered with wall-to-wall carpeting (again!) and every time I vacuum and turn around,
the cats have torn through and left a trail of fur in their wake!
My son and I just bought a house that has beautiful Terrazzo floors throughout and I think we’ll keep them the same in the bathroom, kitchen and dining room. We’re thinking about covering them with carpet in the living room and bedrooms, or maybe hardwood.
Your house sounds lovely Vicki – would love for you to share some photos at our Wordless Wednesday party! 🙂
